Tatton Cinema, Gatley
Mixed use development at the heart of Gatley
The former art deco cinema closed its doors in 2001. The building was then partially demolished with only the art deco façade remaining in situ.
Work is now underway to develop the site, replacing the derelict building with new retirement homes and retail space.
“The art-deco frontage remains a significant feature of the scheme”
In line with local views, particular attention has been paid to ensure that the art deco frontage remains a significant feature of the scheme.
As part of the new development, two shop units will be built either side of the old cinema entrance.
All the new self-contained homes will be available to rent for over 55s, in support of the drive to make more housing available for older people.
The apartments will include features such as accessible bathrooms, door entry systems and scooter stores.
“This development has certainly been a long time coming for the community”
Seven homes will be built above the retail units. A further 26 two-bedroom apartments along with parking, will be built to the rear.
David Chilton, managing director, Rowlinson said “This development has certainly been a long time coming for the community. We’re keen to be working with Stockport Homes and the partners to get it built and ready for its new use.”
